Legendary broadcaster Al Michaels, the play-by-play voice of NBC’s Sunday Night Football, was arrested Friday night for misdemeanor DUI, according to multiple reports.
Police in Santa Monica, California said that Michaels, who was released on his own recognizance, was extremely cooperative throughout a process that began at a routine DUI checkpoint. According to TMZ, breath testing showed that his blood-alcohol concentration was at the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
“We are aware of the situation,” NBC Sports said in a statement. “We have been in contact with Al. We have no further comment at this time.”
